Operation Warm Up Columbus
For over 22 years, Operation Warm has collaborated with corporate and community organizations to benefit children living in need. This year, at elementary schools throughout the Columbus area, supporters will share kindness with local children through the gift of a brand-new coat.
During the week of November 16th, the Warm Up Columbus Initiative will distribute more than 5,000 coats to children in twelve Columbus area elementary schools thanks to funding from premier sponsor, Abercrombie & Fitch, and local area partners.
It’s a local activation of our national mission to provide warmth, confidence, and hope to children in need.
The Columbus Way
This year's initiative benefits local area children through organizations like Columbus City Schools, Imagine Charter Schools, YWCA Columbus, Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority, Columbus Metropolitan Libraries.
